At National Geographic Education, we believe that we’re connected to the ocean with every breath we take and every drop we drink. We have built a substantial ocean education resource hub for educators to use when teaching about ocean life, human interactions with the ocean and the ocean’s physical geography. We think that these resources will help give students the confidence and information necessary to formulate their own opinions on ocean-related environmental issues.
